OK...Its on. Just got back from my brew club meeting and we are having a stout and porter competition with some neighboring clubs. I'm doing an american coffee and maple stout and am not going to mess around. I am formulating the recipe but will share for some feedback. The hops are the most puzzling to me. Im thinking of northern brewer or chinook for bittering with Willamette for aroma. Any advice? I realize some bitterness will come from the coffee but I prefer hop forward beers.

I think he hops you mentioned are classic American stout hops. Thumbs up from me! Other varieties could work like Goldings or Columbus, as long as they are not too fruity for your particular beer. I wonder of Bramling Cross could fit in?

I have had the Rouge Voodoo and it is best to share with someone that REALLY likes smoked beers. I like me some strong smoke beers but a 22oz bomber of this to myself may be tough to finish. I liked the beer but it really tasted like smoke, not smoked bacon, with a nice maple syrup finish.

I also make a caffeinated, caramel, chocolate, coffee stout for 1st breakfast when camping or hunting similar to Founder's Breakfast Stout. I would NOT recommend more than 1 12 oz. bottle at a time. I HIGHLY recommend it with a side of bacon and scrambled eggs w/ cheese cooked over a campfire.

I LOVE the idea of breakfast beers but I think the idea can get itself into trouble FAST. My advise is think how to pair it. No one wants to skip a meal and drink on an empty stomach still groggy from bed. I think if it was paired with food it can open more doors while shutting ones that should be left shut.

Want to try something outlandish? Have a toasted blueberry bagel with plain cream cheese or, if you can find some, a nice spreadable goat cheese paired with a plain geuze or non-fruity, strong sour for breakfast.

I agree with
Zamial,who finally mentioned the Pink Pepto bottled beer. I think I would have liked it better paired,like with a bacon mapledoughnut which I actually seen VideoBeerReveiwGuy do a reveiw with. Some beers are just meant for that.

And Yooper would you use the Captain Crunch with crunch berries or without?
I would use hops to achieve the fruity flavors. Nelson Sauvin and Cascade might get the right aroma- combining Nelson Sauvin's white grape-like qualities with Cascade's grapefruit/citrus should create a flavoer reminiscent of either Berry or even of OJ, which the OP mentions.

I don't think breakfast flavors would be good in a beer, but I am hungry for breakfast foods now!

I bought the Voodoo and I hated it. I gave it to 5 other people to try and it was unanimous. Blech. It inspired my thread on the worst commercial craft brews. To each his own, though.
